I'm trying to create a nice looking header and footer graphic for all documents I deliver to my clients. Can someone give me some tips for doing so? I know that's a general question but I can't find any good tutorials on how to do so. I though I could just whip something up in Photoshop and import it into Pages (I use Apple's iWork suite) but I'm running into problems. Here's a couple of the issues I've had so far:
1) When I create a new Photoshop document I'm specifying a 7.5 inch wide image but when I import it into Pages the image doesn't fill the whole width of the page (which shows 7.5 inches when I view the Pages ruler). Why does this happen? I had to futz with the Photoshop width to get it to fill the width of the Pages document.
2) No matter what anti-aliasing I choose for text it is blurry when imported to the Pages document. Why is this?
Is Photoshop the right tool for this? Should I be using Illustrator instead? Any tips that can get me on the right path would be much appreciated.
